Having your domain name registered by a free hosting service is not
the same thing as having a META refresh tag on your page. If the URL
of your site is www.yourdomain.com that's the only thing the search
engines really care about. It doesn't matter that your site is hosted
on a free account.
"Domain forwarding" is rather a misleading phrase. If your domain
name is registered with the Internic and it's mapped onto a DNS
server, the fact that you're not paying for it is irrelevant, the
domain is as valid as any other and you won't be penalised in any
way by the search engine robots.
